Changes to Electronic Recycling at Drop-off

The following items will not be accepted at the monthly events: large and small appliances; household batteries; electronics from businesses; and hazardous or chemical waste. The event takes place from 9 a.m. to noon on the second Saturday of each month at the Public Works Storage Yard, 820 W Liberty Drive.

Christmas Tree Recycling
If you are served by the City's garbage/recycling hauler, this is the final week for free Christmas tree recycling on your garbage day. If you miss the pickup and still want to recycle your tree, you can place it at the curb with one garbage/yard waste sticker attached. Please remember to remove all decorations, and do not place your tree in a bag.
